Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real prove you can go home again on their latest album, A Few Stars Apart, due out this summer. The new project will be released June 11 on Fantasy Records, and in advance of the new release, the album’s first single, “Perennial Bloom (Back To You),” is out today (4/28).
The eleven songs on A Few Stars Apart are a testament to the human connection: between close family and friends, as well as one’s own heart. Produced by Dave Cobb, the album was inspired by the stillness Nelson found while riding out the beginning of the pandemic with his family in Texas, and was recorded with the full band live on eight-track tape over three weeks at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A.
“I’m from what one might say is the ultimate road family—I’ve been on the road my entire life,” shares Nelson. “I’ve never been anywhere longer than three months, and suddenly here we are, the four of us together… We had a lot of really important bonding that happened during that time. And I have to say, as terrible as the pandemic has been in so many ways, for my inner peace, I was able to take a lot of good from this time. I was able to pause and reflect. It took me a really long time to come back to the home in my heart. In a physical sense, that’s Texas and Hawaii. But in a spiritual sense as well—I think I finally decided not to run from who I am and who I am destined to be. First and foremost, that’s a songwriter. That’s what this record means to me. There’s a story being told through the whole record. A story about connection and coming home.”
